A Lampshade Facelift....

Do you have a wonderful lamp 
that has just an ordinary Lampshade?

You can change that with some fabric and trim.

My friend Shelly had that exact problem.

Take a Look...

Nice Lamp..... Ordinary Lampshade... 



It took about an hour.
What a face lift!


I searched my drapery fabric stash and came up with this combo.
I knew there was a reason I save all these small scraps.
Two different fabrics and three different trims,
gives this lamp a one of a kind look.



I love how the light shines through the fabric.



The loop trim finished off the lower edge of the shade.


Here's another one of shelly's "not so special" lampshades.

The lamp was really cute...
The lampshade not so much....


Here's another fabric and trim combo.


Take a closer look...



I delivered them to Shelly and she smiled!
She has a beautiful home.



It was the perfert touch
for the lampshade....


She had two of these lamps and I covered both lampshades.
Here's the other one....


I love the way it reflects in the set of mirrors....


Here's the other lamp,
sitting in it's new home.


Do I have you thinking
about changing any lamp shades in your house?

You can do it!



You'll be suprised how easy this can be
and the final result will give you a one of a kind look
 that you will LOVE.

I have enterered these one of a kind lampshades int the
"Crafting with the Stars" contest. 
Stop by and Check it out.

I'll be linking up to....

I am in love with what you did to that first shade, Sherry! I have a couple of shades that are tagged {mentally anyway} for some fabric and trim additions. Plain white shades that I hope to dress up once we are moved and I have some time to just play!

Sherry, You've done it again! Taken a plain-jane shade and turned it into a glamorous beauty.
They look great!
